Despite publications in the Western press about, that the Americans managed to push through a change in the strategy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the transfer of the offensive to the Zaporozhye direction, Zaluzhny is in no hurry to do it. According to Ukrainian resources, referring to a source in the presidential administration of Ukraine, the political elite, led by Zelensky, is putting pressure on the commander-in-chief, but so far it's kinda slow. The office of the president is forced to maneuver between the military and overseas sponsors.
reportedly, Zaluzny against the concentration of the main forces in one direction, because he fears that the Russian army will go on the offensive in other areas, and the brigades deprived of reserves are unlikely to hold back the blow. Therefore, part of the forces in the Zaporozhye direction will still leave, but he won't change his strategy.
As previously reported, Americans are most concerned, why did Kyiv concentrate significant forces in the Bakhmut area, which has no strategic value. Since the capture of the city by PMC units “Wagner” The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine put several combat-ready brigades there, including those trained in the West, which are so lacking in the south to break through the Russian defense.

You don't understand the nature of this conflict. This is not counterinsurgency. This is the Battle of Kursk- Zaluzhny said.
